-founder of the political economy research institute at umass, a very important research institute backed does excellent academic scholarship with a public purpose. bob's books include a number of looks, contours of descent on the u.s. economy and in 2003, two books on the living wage, 1998 book of the living wage, building a fair economy and a reasonably measure of fairness, the economics of the living wage and his most recent book is the topic for tonight, "back to full employment." i just want to add that bob's work on the living wage has been very very important. he has been probably the leading researcher on this important issue. has written numerous papers and reports in addition to his books and has traveled to cities across the country to speak about the living wage and has testified before many city councils who were considering a living wage proposal and i think this is a really important contribution and i just want to acknowledged that. bob's recent work is focused on the green economy and the achievement of the twin goals of sustainable energy and full employment. there are numbers of repor
to be fiscally responsible and reduce the deficit. to make velft to grow our economy and to meet our obligation to our seniors, to our families and to our future and the republican budget fails all three. republican budget threatens our nation by undermining our economic growth and by shifting the financial burden for the deficit, and the deficit reduction, to our seniors and the middle class. republicans have made their choices clear, end medicare as we know it, adding costs to seniors today and ending the medicare guarantee tomorrow, slashing investments necessary for economic competitiveness and giving millionaires an average of $400,000 in tax breaks. republican budget eliminates protection for millions of our sickest seniors who depend on nursing home and home health services and republican budget will increase taxes for average middle-class families by $3,000. their choices will cost two million jobs next year alone and decrease economic growth by 1.7%. in contrast, the democratic alternative present serves -- preserves the medicare guarantee and makes investments in education, innovation
was a pretty basic statement. i said, when we think about the health of the u.s. economy, we have to remember that a private sector job in a public-sector job -- and a public-sector job are not the same thing. it private sector job pays for itself. a public-sector job is paid for by taxpayers. i thought it was a pretty obvious statement. later, my staff was contacted by a reporter who felt that he needed to fact check the statement. seriously. it was interesting to me, because it said how little so many people understand what makes the economy go. one of our fundamental issues in this country is we have a lot of people setting policy that impacts our economy, but they don't understand how the economy actually works. and the impact of that policy. my second anecdote is this, in a of smallll, 70% business owners said that they thought the federal government was hostile to them. not neutral. not negative. hostile. remember that figure, remember that statement. here we have the stock market achieving record highs day after day. we have large companies in many, many industries reporting record pro
this economy. and i thank you once again, my good friend from california, for making all the important points this evening. mr. garamendi: washington, d.c., your leadership in this community has been known for some time and i thank you very much for joining us tonight. i want to do two things before i end. first of all, medicare is back on the table. the ryan budget takes up medicare once again and provides a voucher that will destroy it. i'm going to change this. medicare, 1965, president 2013, created by l.b.j., destroyed by the g.o.p. i don't think so. seniors don't want it. americans don't want it. the last campaign for presidency, this was one of the major issues and ryan is coming back with it. bad idea, bad timing. and i want to end with this, this is a great country. there is no other place in the world like the united states. it is one terrific country. there is enormous energy in this country, where people want to get a job and go to work and businesses want to grow and hire people. all of that is waiting for congress to get its act together, to get this sequestration out of the way
to the sequester republicans will not replace. just as the economy is improving for our neighbors and small businesses back home. in contrast, the democratic alternative will cren rate 1.2 million more job, stop the sequester and in committee, democrats proposed to close those special interest tax loopholes that riddle our tax code, republicans said no. democrats proposed to offset unwise republican cuts to medical research like alzheimer's, cancer, diabetes research at n.i.h., republicans said no. democrats tried to cut the special interest spending in the tax code to offset republican cuts to students who rely on pell grants but republicans said no. mr. van hollen: i yield the gentleman another minute and a half. the chair: the gentleman is recognized. ms. castor: the democrats in the budget committee proposed to strengthen medicare and replace the republican plan to turn medicare into a voucher program. all it does is simply shift the cost tour families and older neighbors. mr. speaker, this republican budget is not consistent with american values. it is not fiscally responsible. it is a
't afford higher taxes, especially in the obama economy. and if that's really the kind of budget senate democrats plan to offer, it would sacrifice america's hopes for sustained economic recovery at the altar of higher taxes and bloated, unaccountable government. it would also draw an important contrast with the budget republicans put forward yesterday. because here's the thing, republicans believe we should be growing the economy, not the government. growing the economy, not the government. and the house republican budget reflects just those priorities. it's a budget that does something else too. it actually balances. it actually balances. that's important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it would help unleash economic growth and bring down our country's massive, massive debt load. interest payments on the national debt alone are set to exceed everything we spend on defense. interest on the national debt is going to exceed everything we spend on defense in just a few years' time. so the path we're on is clearly not sustainable. with that in mind, i hope democrats
is not buying it. and some economists are now saying that there's a shadow economy that could explain why the retail sales are rising despite static credit spending and paychecks. an explanation at last. at it all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. >>> from fox, at 3:00 in new york city, seven u.s. marines are dead and several others hurt after a training exercise in nevada. it happened at hawthorne army depot there last night. the military uses that base to store weapons and train troops. according to military sources, large mortar, like the one you see hour, somehow exploded. officials describe frantic scene. it was 45-minute chopper flight to the nearest trauma center in reno. today the white house says the president is watching the developments. >> the president's thoughts and prayers go to the families of those who were lost and those who are injured. we're obviously in the early stages of assessing the incident. it's a tragedy, clearly, and the president was briefed immediately on -- and made aware of it immediately and briefed on it, and we're monitoring the situation.
reduction is very important, but creating the millions of jobs that our economy desperately needs is even more important. i would go further than that. everybody -- i could tell you in the state of vermont and i suspect in the other 49 states, we have a serious problem with roads and bridges and water systems and schools, broadband. we need to invest in our infrastructure to make this country more productive. when you do that you create jobs. so i am a big fan of investing in the infrastructure and strongly supportive of that proposal. i would have gone higher. host: you can see here in wall street "washington journal," republican plan and blue plan in -- for the democrats. you can see that there. guest: that's the real issue. do you really think that the only way we can move to deficit reduction is cut, cut, cut? when revenue at 18.2%, the lowest in 60 years, i think there needs to be a balanced approach and we need to close outrageous loopholes that corporations enjoy. host: talking to bernie sanders, independent in vermont. folks are eager to talk to you. let's go to edward in grand pr
class and an economy built on nnovation. in my state of the union address, our most important task was to drive that economic growth. i meant it. we should be asking ourselves the questions -- how to make america a land for good jobs? how do we equip people with skills and training to do those jobs? how do we make sure that hard work leads to a decent iving? please feel free to sit down. i'm sorry. everyone is standing. maybe it was one of the effects of the sequester. you had to get rid of chairs. [laughter] i chose argonne national lab because few areas hold more promise for creating good jobs and growing our economy than how we use american energy. after years of talking about it, we are poised to take control of our energy future. we produce more oil that we have in 15 years. we import less oil than we had in 20 years. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from wind and solar. tens of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we are producing more natural gas than we have before that hundreds of thousands of good jobs to show for it. we have supported the
revenues. it would cut waste, add jobs and spur economic growth of the economy. it would reduce the deficit by an additional $1.8 trillion without jeopardizing the recovery or harming the middle class. it includes $1.2 trillion in new revenue obtained not by tax increases but by closing loopholes and eliminating wasteful spending that benefits the wealthiest americans and the largest corporations. it eliminates $4 billion in annual tax breaks to the oil and gas industry, an industry that is making profits. they don't need a tax break. in fact, they're making enormous profits. so, why does the ryan budget give them a government subsidy? the democratic plan invests in infrastructure, education, job training and innovation. it is designed first and foremost to help create jobs and strengthen the economy. the house democratic budget also makes critical investments in our future. $200 billion is invested in infrastructure, education, job training and innovation. helping to create jobs and strengthen the economy. these investments include $80 billion for an education jobs initiative, $50 billion
, and middle-class alike. economy isar as the concerned, we are to come together and make it grow. people have been coming out of prison who have been locked up for years and have no sense of direction for what they will do when they get out, just because jobs require certain backgrounds. the money that we pay the why don't we use that to provide a job where everybody gets an opportunity to get off welfare and food stamps? a program should be put in place for those on financial assistance from the government to do some type of work, to earn what they get. those incentives that are being given could be used to develop the economy. thank you, c-span. host: on twitter -- al writes about cpac. that the editorial this morning on cpac from al cardenas as cpac joins its 40th year. travis is on the republican line. caller: there should be a progressive tax on revenue. and i would like to see campaign funds taxed. on the second amendment, it's as we shall not have any infringement [indiscernible]. take care. host: this remark from liz smith -- "usa today" has a story getting attention this friday morni
they need to compete in a very tough economy. today the federal government currently operates more than 50 different job training programs, many of which are duplicative. at a cost of $18 million annually to taxpayers. with nearly 20 million americans unemployed or underemployed, it's time to cut through the red tape and start training individuals with the skills they need to find high-paying middle-class jobs. mrs. wagner: that's why the house will take up the skills lap, which overlaps training programs which eliminates unnecessary red tape so state and local resources goes directly to job seekers. according to the report released by st. louis community college, 76% of employers said that employees lack proper training to contribute right away on the most important demand certificates for job openings were for registered nurses. the skills acts addresses those needs. we need to invest in nurses, manufacturing assistants and cut the ineffective government programs that do little to train employees for the skills they need. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back
and the austerity he is putting in place has caused the economy to be really slow. >> a lot of tax increases over there in europe. we look at this austerity bit. i want to talk about this for a second. >> i want to get back to the budget then. >> talk about what is happening in washington. you know, economics discussed on tv or on the internet or on twitter, it's so depressing, because people really don't know what they are talking about and they just sort of boil it down and there is this belief through the years, that tax cuts are not a tool used. of course, tax cuts are a tool used and tax increases something that traditional are against in bad times. we hear about austerity across great britain and we never hear about the tax increases. when you talk about the fact they cut and slash spending at the same time they hike taxes, it really was a formula made to fail. >> spending cuts and tax increases both take money out of the economy and slow the economy and, yes, they create this idea of austerity. but, look. it's a balancing problem. on the one hand you need to deal with it budgets and defici
of law. they have tremendous workloads, but they keep this economy going. and if you slow that down, if you slow down civil dispositions where contracts are waiting to be enforced with the plant is quick to be built or so forth, whether the damages are going to be paid through someone who was the victim of the breach of conduct. if you're going to cause dismissal of the suits because of criminal suits, criminal prosecutions because of the light, then you're threatening the efficiency of the legal structure. thank you very much. to have one of the comments i want to share with you, this month you will hear cases that are of the utmost importance to many american families. that is with the gay americans have the right to marry straight couples and whether the congress can deprive legally married gay couples of the federal recognition and benefits. i mention this not because i expect either of you to speak on this issue. in fact i know you will not. president bill clinton who resigned doma enchilada and now requests its demise recently wrote the question of the cases rests on, quote, w
for a retirement crisis even as the stock market sits near highs and the economy shows improvement. host: so we're getting your take on this. your retirement andization. tell us if you are and why and if you are not, why not? it's a story in the "usa today" as well this morning confidence in retirement continues to flail about this report, because americans have to cope with many immediate financial concerns retirement is taking a backseat. only 2% of workers and a% of retirees say retirement is their most pressing issues. among other worries -- host: at least many americans have a more realistic perspective about retirement says the senior vice president of retirement and investor services at the principle financial group. host: in arkansas, a democrat, are you saving? caller: yes, i save every penny i can get my hands on. host: 401-k or how are you saving? caller: c.d.'s and bank accounts that are ensured. host: why not put it in the market? caller: i can't afford to lose it. i've seen too many people lose their behinds and with what little money i've saved all my life, i can't afford to lose
to the economy? >> i think you cannot get these kind of cuts without -- >> what cuts? i'm talking about freezing -- >> hold on. i know you're a young politician. i like young politicians more than old politicians. but whatever you are, you got to wait. because i let you go. right? let's do that. i think the answer is if you look at taking a big bite out of the jobs in the public sector, and taking away the spending that goes throughout the entire economy, that hurts growth. that's the biggest problem. i think an issue for you is i think it's great to have someone who's 23 out there running. i think that is great in both parties. we have way too many senior citizens making decisions for the rest of us. i'm with that. the question i have for you is, if you're going to go in your district, prince william counties is one of the biggest counties. >> 70,000 federal workers. >> you know where i'm going. that's the debate have. what's the largest employer there? >> 70,000 people. 1 out of every 10 people in my district works for the federal government. >> you're going to run. this is the question. you'r
's less impinging on the economy. you keep hearing the economy is ready to take off. if we can get the government out of the way for a couple years we can get some really nice growth and that will change things up and i think they are sceeding in denuclearizing our conflicts. no fiscal cliffs, no debt defaults. let the economy grow for a change. >> woodruff: what are you hearing. >> the government has to get out of the way, i love that. that's a great one after what we've been through in this country with absolutely no control. and we just learned again this week that the bank's too big to fail, too big to be reprimanded, controlled by the federal government. but i'd say this, judy. there's an old line in politics you dance with the girl who -- barack obama didn't do that. for the past seven years he's gone into hundreds if not thousands of rooms, people with large egos, people with great accomplishments, people who are great skeptical toward him and he went in and he charmed them to the point not only they supported him they wrote checks for him. he comes to washington and that s
for this mess. no more taxes. we cannot take it in a bad economy. who knows what corn to happen in budgetary fluctuations between today and 10 years from today? entitlements is a very nasty way of saying we have to take something you ever earned and take it back because we cannot decide what to do with your money in the first place. i think the president is wrong. i am a democrat, but i don't support his ideas. tax-and-spend, tax-and-spend. the ryan budget is thdoa. this is too much, too late. who knows what is going to happen between today and 10 years from today? hopefully, i will be alive to get what i earned. i would rather be in my > to continue seeing this misery that the u.s. congress and this president and his health care act needs to be a pair back. it's not going to work. host: david on our independent line from mclean, virginia. caller: i have some questions. it's your guests along the line? host: we're just taking calls right now. our first guest is about a half- hour. caller: one, we would like to get clarification on the senate's passing the budget through an act of reconciliat
in a trillion dollars. you would still be left with a deficit and you would wreck the economy. martha: interesting lesson. stuart, thanks very much. we'll be watching it throughout the day as i know you will. let's look at bigger picture of europe's debt crisis. five countries needed bailouts from the european central bank and imf. greece, spain, ireland, portugal as stuart mentioned. germany the fifth biggest. great britain at number eight. france with the 9th largest. italy at number ten. they all shrunk in the last quarter of last year. europe is basically contracting. the eurozone is losing huge numbers of jobs. a record 19 million people are unemployed. it is a tough picture and one we need to watch closely here at home. bill: sure do. no telling when that thing will get straightened out. >>> more rough water for carnival cruise lines. another disabled ship of vacationers, limping back to port. legend arriving yesterday. a leading senator calling for a passenger bill of rights. what would be in that bill? peter doocy live in washington. what would this bill of rights do, peter? >
is -- we've got two crisises going on. one we are in a job crisis, a slow economy, and how do you address that, austerity and cuts, spending cuts, and raising taxes, and the republicans are right about that raising taxes slows the economy, cutting spending close the economy. we are trying to deal with both of those crisis at the same time. we've got to 3.5 trillion in revenue increases and spending cuts while the economy has continued to sort of grind slowly. i think what we're looking at now, what we're hoping i think, everybody hopes both side can come together on it, again, how do we get to the 4 trillion that bowles-simpson recommended without killing the economy? and i think that's why you get both these sets of facts that are true. both side are actually right about this. now the question is -- and we've avoided killing the economy by trying to address it. jon: everybody a grows that the long-term driver of the problem are the programs like medicaid, social security. so this president doesn't have to run again. why not do something bold and tell americans, you know, if you're under
. that is terrible for the economy. march 27 there will be a speech in georgia from steve moore. i'm sure the last thing he will say is we need to increase taxes. host: where do you see and that they can come together? caller: i have been working in politics 50 years. the republicans have compromised ourselves into a $16 trillion debt. it's time for the democrats. we have got to cut spending. obama is not doing anything accept raising taxes -- except for raising taxes. the rich are the heroes because they create jobs. i'm not against poor people, but they cannot give anybody a job. we need to stop the attacks on the rich. we need to cut spending. i am thinking of changing my name to cut spending. host: here is what steve wrote on twitter -- let's hear from dennis in massachusetts, independent. caller: how are you? i am reacting to the report that the senate plan suggests another quarter billion dollar cut to medicare after the $760 billion cut that the senate democrats have already made. as your reporter just said, but guess you havd, it's doubtful that will not affect medicare beneficiaries. i am
are not helping people to improve their conditions. the scandals have devastated our economy. host: thank you very much for the call. this is a profile on the snap program in rhode island. it is an ackerman for the supplemental nutrition assistance program. let us go to jason from britain, new jersey. caller: thank you for this great topic. i think it is one we can all relate to because everyone has to eat. it all starts with food. athink the first lady has set good example with the garden she is growing behind the white house. given to allwas americans to grow a garden. this could wipe out the hunger problem probably within one growing season. some type of tax incentive, some the of extra tax on corporations and oil companies that are getting subsidies. take a small fraction of that away. give that to citizens to grow food. around in onethis season. this is an opportunity out of anniversary -- this is an opportunity. out of adversity comes opportunity. it is a travesty to see americans going hungry. these are programs i did not even get interested in. it is easy for us to blame government. let us
is the security industry as a more efficient supplier of funds to the real economy than banks. it's simply less costly to sell bonds, notes and commercial paper to investors and to borrow from a bank. the mid-1980s intermediating transactions, the security industry has supplied 15 times more financing to the real economy and banking and has done so without government regulation. when the financial crisis came, lipid regulated investment aches like bear stearns, lehman brothers and merrill lynch did no worse than heavily regulated fdic insured commercial banks like waconia, washington mutual and indie mac. it's hard to see more and tighter regulation is the end there. what we are watching the name of prudential regulation is the government squeezing the life out of the banking industry through the interstate commerce commission gradually squeezed the life out of the railroads. if we let the government insurance provide regulation to the security business for some regulators have now proposed will pay a heavy price in lost economic growth. finally, it even natural supporters of free-market and me
. mr. thompson: the only way to get our economy growing stronger is take an honest account of the fiscal problems we face and put forward policies to address these challenges. it's called budgeting. a fundamental part entails writing and passing a budget, something we haven't seen the senate in four years. four years, that's how long americans have had to wait for the senate to perform its most basic function as a legislative body. before today, the only thing certain was that the senate would not consider a budget. today, the senate democrats introduced a budget and i'm glad they did. it's about time. unform after reviewing their proposal, the only thing certain is that their budget will never balance. we owe the american people a responsible balanced budget. the house budget introduced yesterday, balances the budget in 10 years. the senate democrats' proposal never balances ever. a balanced budget will foster a healthier economy and create jobs, madam speaker. the american people elected us to lead and put forward solutions and not hide from the challenge and posture for
a crazy for years with the economy. we went to the financial crisis and the deficit kind of blew out. i think that democrats are finally trying to get back in regular order in the senate. max baucus is an interesting figure. they can do any tax changes or it entitlement changes that went through the committee. so he is sitting back and waiting for the issues to come to him. he has already had tax reform hearings. so he is one that will watch this move forward. >> democrats need only 51 votes to pass the budget outline. no doubt it will, but we can't wait to see which senators get lined up as potential sacrifices. the senators running in 2014, mary landrieu, mark begich of alaska, they might get a pass from harry reid. >> that is right. they control a couple of things, but we know that republicans are struggling with the same issue. the president is trying to give someone public and senators to work in a bipartisan way. but there's a lot of consternation in the house about house republicans. going after conservatives who look at tax increases as part of a deal. there is pressure from the
economy and creates good jobs that american people need to support their families. we must balance our budget for our students. those who are currently in our universities and community colleges should feel confident that an investment in their education will lead them to good-paying jobs when they graduate. a balanced budget gives them that confidence that their future will not be threatened by staggering debt. most important we must balance our budget for our children and grandchildren who deserve the same chance of the american dream that we have been given. rather than handing them a bill for this generation's irresponsibility, a balanced budget will allow us to hand them a brighter future, an american future. our budget, a balanced budget, represents a departure from the status quo here in washington and it represents house republicans' commitment to moving our nation forward in a fiscally responsible way. i urge my colleagues to support this resolution and i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from maryland, m
of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and with some private health systems, we could save more than $1.2 trillion that is the flawed sequester is suppos
of this economy and i think we'll be pleasantly surprised when we get this housing starts number. of course, the fed bull from hell crowd will ratchet up their bets. that lightning will strike on wednesday if they see a strong number. and i think they will be, unfortunately, unpleasantly surprised when they see it because nobody in that crowd wants to see any good. i actually like things that are good. old fashioned. housing's so strong that it's lifting all boats including brunswick by the way and the housewares. so let's listen to william sonoma conference call on their earnings on tuesday to be sure the carryover's intact. now, i'm thinking this may be long in our ever expanding great index or maybe it's the greater gatsby index. i once bought a pot for like $200. it was a big, round cast iron, red thing and then i saw it at the jersey shore outlet for almost half the price. and i am still kicking myself. eighth anniversary, nothing's changed. now, we use a ton of gauges to measure things like retail sales and employment around here that are bottoms up, meaning we look at what individual
's state of florida is similar philosophy and economic or grams created a thriving state economy for 1.4 million new net jobs were added during his time in office. there are other fundamental report issues where the two men match. suspending the rising cost of health care improving education through accountability and school choice and as i'm sure we'll hear some more this morning addressing the vital issues involving immigration that affect all of us. these are all issues addressed by ronald reagan years ago that continue to resonate on these important topics in our lives. ones in which governor bush has demonstrated much-needed leadership today. it is for these and many other reasons that jeb bush stands as the only republican governor in the history of the state of florida to be reelected to office. he hails from a family that has gone out of their way to extend more support to all of us at the reagan library over the years. let us extend that warmth and ladies and gentlemen please join me in welcoming governor jeb bush. a pause cut. >> i am truly honored to be here.

a two day meeting on the economy this afternoon. then fed chairman ben bernanke will hold a news conference. we will have live coverage of his remarks to reporters at 2:30 eastern on c-span3. here's some of what we're covering this morning. the house is expected to finish work on the republican budget of the 2014 budget. live coverage of 10:00 eastern on c-span. on c-span2, the senate is working on a measure to fund the federal government for the rest of the fiscal year. testifying about the ongoing two year civil war in syria. that live hearing starts at 9:45 eastern. this week marks the 10th anniversary of the start of the iraq war. in 45 minutes we will talk with california representative barbara lee, who opposed u.s. military action in iraq. and a congressman who served as a u.s. air force reserve chaplin, we will get his perspective on the war and veterans' issues. will, a virginia senator join us as part of our spotlight on magazine series. he writes about the role of congress in u.s. foreign policy. we will also take your calls, e- mails, and host: good morning, and welcom
things. we must prioritize the economy, and power energy growth, reform education. i believe we are starting for leadership -- starving for leadership. i believe revitalization must be addressed on the state and national level. as conservatives, or identity has become lost amidst diverging messages. we need laserlike focus on the economy. we need to analyze every proposal in light of, will this get america back to work? we need to get people working by reducing the government's role in creation of jobs. my state's motto, mountaineers are always free, which is a delicate means to me that we need to limit government and create more workers independence. in west virginia and so many other states, this means treating a level playing field for all businesses, regardless of their union status. west virginia is the perfect ground for our national principles. west virginians are fiscally conservative, we have the best rainy day fund in the nation, but nonetheless, employment has in my state.ed when liberals are the cause of the low economy, they seem to blame conservatives. i don't unde
